Ride a Donkey
The Llama Park has two very nice, friendly donkeys on which customers can take a ride. Riders must weigh less than 60 kilogrammes.
We have two donkeys. One is called Muffin and he is experienced in carrying riders and was obtained by us from the famous ‘Hunts Donkey Derby’ company. He has been fully trained and is well tempered and enjoys carrying riders.
Tommy is the other donkey and he also came from the famous ‘Hunts Donkey Derby’ company. He has been fully trained and is well tempered and enjoys carrying riders. He is also trained to pull a cart in races and soon we hope to have him in harness so children can race him around the Park.
Children wishing to ride a donkey must be under 60 kilogrammes and accompanied by a parent or supervising adult on their ride.
Safety helmets will be provided and all riders must wear a riding helmet for protection.
A parent or supervising adult must sign an accident waiver and disclaimer form before we can allow a child under 16 to go on a ride.
Donkey rides cost £5 and last for 5 minutes and are restricted to a fenced in paddock close to the main building complex.
Donkey rides are usually offered in the summer, in the afternoons, between 12:30 and 13:00 but can be provided at other times by special arrangement.
Please book your donkey ride in advance by phoning 01825 712 040.
